Balsamic Basil Chicken

Balsamic Basil Chicken

So after a weekend of baking up a storm I decided I really need to focus on some health conscious meals.  Seriously, those Mounds brownies I made are all gone. Plus we polished off a batch of my oatmeal cinnamon raisin cookies. I know, bad, right? I really do enjoy eating healthy foods but I enjoy baking even more! 

I vowed our dinners this week wouldn’t include any cookies 😉  Here’s an easy and flavorful dish that’s super good for you with lots of veggie goodies.

    Mmmm I love anything smothered in basil!! I’m not a huge spinach fan, but I bet this would be really good over brown rice. 🙂
